Number 2? I don't think I can do it, but Darkness is such a powerful song for me, so maybe I go with that one. I don't know. Too many to choose from.

Oh and Incident would be #1 for me

I probably listen to Tunnel of Love more than Darkness or Born to Run. He wrote it at a pivotal point in his life/career.

I'm down with you on Jungleland. They played the entire album last time through Philly, just stunning.

Tunnel of Love is wildly underrated. Top 5 Bruce album, for me.

I don't know if I could even pick a definitive number one, let alone number two.

I'll take heat for this, but the one album I think is overrated is Nebraska. I like parts of it, I just never got into it as a full album.

Hard to believe that Bruce now has released 6 full discs of B-sides (Tracks + The Promise) that are pretty across the board great.........and he still may have 6-8 more discs of unreleased material left.

Unbelievably prolific with quality, non-throwaway material. Most bands have 1 disc of B-Sides and they are mediocre.

I'd say 6-8 is underestimating it

Electric Nebraska
Plus you have all the songs that were debuted on the reunion tour and scrapped for The Rising (LOHAD, Code of Silence, Another Thin Line). God that would've been such an awesome album

He could easily do another double disc for a River box set. Just google Brucebase and go through all the recording sessions. It's nuts

In the Darkness documentary, all of his bandmates to this day can't believe what he has left on the shelf.

agreed, though it's aged well and has gotten a lot more recognition as time goes on

The best stuff was definitely on Tracks. If The Promise was so good, a lot of it would've been on Tracks already

I still think The Rising is one of his best songs, if not his best. The lyrics, and especially that bridge ("I see Mary in the garden...") just bowl me over every single time.

agreed, i think we've had this exact discussion about the lyrics in the bridge because NiCK thinks the song's obnoxious like a fucking retard.

I think The Rising (the album) is so great, cause a lot of the choruses are basically just like old gospel choruses (Lonesome Day, Into The Fire, Rising, My City Of Ruins). He manages to get that spiritual feeling and not sound at all cheesy or like an asshole while doing it.

I see Mary in the garden
In the garden of a thousand sigh's.
There's holy pictures of our children
Dancing in a sky filled with light
May I feel your arms around me
May I feel your blood mix with mine
A dream of life comes to me
Like a catfish dancing on the end of my line

just awesome

it's a little too long, with just the right amount of forgettable tracks that he easily could have trimmed it down to 12 songs and it would been up there with his glory days material.

but agreed about the chorus, they don't sound cheesy but he still manages to make them sound fucking huge and arena ready right from the record.
